I enjoyed my stay and the Handlery hotel and found it a good place to base ourselves while in San Francisco. Our room in the older building was of average size with quite a small bathroom but adequate enough to stay in as the majority of the time we were sight-seeing, but there were double beds which were comfortable, plus...

My brother and I visited San Francisco at the end of May and the first few days of June this year. The hotel was excellent and the staff was great. The room was a good size and very comfortable. The breakfast was limited and if you wanted anything extra as orange juice you had to pay for it. Edmund

We stayed at this hotel in June and found the location to be very central to shopping and restaurants....but unfortunately that was the only good thing about this hotel. The staff at this hotel were so rude and unprofessional i couldn't understand why they were working in this profession..I asked the concierge about tickets to Alcatraz (I was unaware that... More

Good location, clean, wifi works well. But they charged $20 for 2 telephone calls in California of about 2 min each! Thats just cheeky. When I questioned the reception they apologised and blamed it on the phone provider. I still paid.

Before I begin, please let me explain I am not usually a person to complain in fact I would say very tolerant. Currently staying at the Handlery Hotel, checked in yesterday after a long drive to get here, we went to our room and it was OK, although a little disappointed with the standard. The room was VERY noisy, the... More

Stayed here for four nights with my partner and enjoyed our stay. Hotel staff were friendly and the concierge helped to book activities and airport transfers. Room was a good size and spotless. Ours faced the main street so there was a lot of noise from the hustle and bustle but I suppose that's what comes with this type of... More

We booked 3 nights at the Handlery as part of a Virgin holiday package. I contacted the hotel before travel and requested a quiet room on a high floor, which provoked a response from Jon Handlery to say it was a busy time but he would reserve a room to meet our requirements. My wife, daughter and I arrived on... More

Hotel was booked by me for a colleague in the travel industry who has stayed before. He recommends the hotel and wanted to stay for the location and amenities offered. Able to walk to great sites, close to everything of interest.
